Venice

by picturesbydara

 

These two paintings are a tribute to Venice. The focus shifts from the mere presentation of a complex city landscape to the interesting interplay of the town with the expansive, endless sea. The works highlight the beauty of the city and also deal with the city’s precarity by being located next to the sea. The sea itself has the role of an amorphous dominant force that must be contained from drowning the treasures of the town, but on the other hand also has a complimenting role as a canvas that reflects the sparkling city lights.
